There are 4 sitting days left, before Parliament takes a half term break. The Commons, though, are already easing down. They don't have any laws to debate next week. That should free them up for lots of discussions about the EU and other things. The Lords, though, are full steam ahaed on some of the biggest laws of the moment.

Welfare Reform and Work Bill
This is intended to encourage people into work but is very controversial. It will create an annual benefits cap of £13,400 (£20,000 a couple - more in London).
It will also freeze social security benefits (pensions, jobseekers etc) and tax credit for 4 years and limit child benefit to 2 children per family.
